Sennheiser Conference System Easily Translates Between English and Inuktitut

kugaaruk.JPG

KUGAARUK, NUNAVUT – DECEMBER 2010: Home to approximately eight-hundred native Inuit and a handful of southerners, the municipality of Kugaaruk brushes up against the Arctic Ocean, in the far northern Nunavut Territory of Canada. It is the location of Canada’s coldest recorded wind chill (-78 degrees Celsius) and a place where the day is seldom punctuated by a rising or setting sun. It is also the location of very favorable seal hunting and a place where polar bear sightings are commonplace. In their meetings every two weeks, Kugaaruk council members rely on a conference system so that Christopher Amautinuar can translate between English and Inuktitut. Kugaaruk recently replaced an aged and problematic conference system with a new Sennheiser conference system that delivers spoken word with perfect clarity and intelligibility.
